-faire anything goes bush s.e.c., that all changed. i think the obama administration has hardly done anything to roll back the damage. making the market less legitimate and less safe for you. all the changes that made the market faster, allowed the machines to ping each other for quick, tiny gains, allowing many managers to evade the margin rules bring double or triple etfs selling power or buying power through appeal of the original uptick rule, which protected us from endless short selling. the s.e.c. either approved or enacted all of these things that made the market more dangerous and more difficult when things get bad and will do so again when we get that kind of quick, sharp decline. so if you expect the s.e.c. to have your back, think again. if you think the exchanges have any interest in maintaining legitimacy of our stock markets, not so much. you've got to understand the exchanges aren't on your side because their whole bias is to allow the big institutional hedge funds to make fast trades that generate maybe a fraction of penny in the profits. in the old days they were non

be the case. but i think as president obama made clear, he really doesn't want to get involved to the syrian civil war. this is all about punitive action against syria for the gas attack, the chemical weapons attack, of a week and a half ago. and it is also to establish credibility with iran about the willingness of the united states to take strong action in the region. but i don't think we see ans escalating theory here. >> the price the of oil -- we all know syria doesn't export a whole lot of oil, so that's not at issue here. but they are expecting a ripple effect that would effect the countries that do export oil. do you? >> i agree very much with david. i think this will be a very isolated. meant to send a message, not just to enemies but to our friend. we have lots of friends around the world who are relying on the guarantees who have made them. people in japan, taiwan, israel. where we have said things are unacceptable. if we say something is unacceptable in syria and we still do nothing and friends say can we count on the united states. this is meant to send a message to frien

we were a few decades ago. another interesting thing here, by the way, you have the obama administration taking the side of consumers, but in a sense opposing another important constituency, and that's labor. back in the old days this would have been an easy call for a democratic administration, because labor unions hated mergers, but the past few mergers have been so positive for labor, delta and northwest especially, very few people lost their jobs and everybody got big raises that here you have the unions actually out in front supporting this. you had mesh unions supporting this merger before management did, and so that's an interesting line to walk, and interesting to see the position that the administration is taking. >> seth, thank you very much. appreciate you being with us. seth kaplan of "airline weekly." now to sue who will bring us up to date on the markets. >> a lot of ups and downs. a big recovery in the dow jones industrial average. part that have linked to the comments just a few moments ago by one of the fed members, mr. lockhart, talking to our steve liesm

fomc announcing the beginning of tapering, obama appointing the successor to bernanke. the continuing resolution expires and the consumption tax hike decision in japan. so if we believe, if as we do believe that we don't see a tapering in september after nearly 20 percent rally in stocks this year, perhaps it might be prudent to start pulling back ahead of what no doubt will be a messy few months of uncertainty even without the tapering. look at the day on wall street today. the market was higher. in fact we're looking at gains across the board but still expected to show a down week because we have had three days of selling. today the do you up 27 points, nasdaq up 15 and the s&p 500 up about 6.5. i'll see you tomorrow.

think that obama care will make this a nonissue. a lot of people think that. but in 2014, you've got to have a choice. either buy health insurance or pay the penalty mandated by the affordable care act or there'll be some fudging about when the penalty comes in. that's the gist of it. the penalty starts off at $95 or 1% of your annual income, whichever is larger in 2013, 2% of your income otherwise. again, which is even bigger -- whichever's bigger. and 2016, $695, 2.95% of your income. don't be a moron. even if you object to the affordable care act politically, it's idiotic to pay a fine and get nothing rather than pony up and get health insurance. plus, all kinds of subsidies to make the costs more bearable if you're on the lower end. you shouldn't need legislation to make you get insurance, it's the biggest cause of bankruptcy in this country. i know how bad it is to live without insurance because i've been there living in california getting treatment from clinics when i moved up north on interstate 5 before my parents bailed me out and my sister. i know especially the younger can
